Enhance Grid View functionality

Having a Grid View that displays quite a few fields is not an issue on a large screen (see attached screenshot 01_large screen.png).

But on a small (laptop) screen you are not able to see all columns anymore (see attached screenshot 02_small screen.png). In this case a user would have to scroll to the right somehow to see the "hidden" columns. To do so, a user currently has to scroll down to the bottom of the Grid View table and use the scrollbar shown there (see attached screenshot 03_horizontal scrollbar.png).

Thus it would be very helpful if the horizontal scrollbar at the bottom of the table would always be visible at the bottom of the browsr window - when necessary due to the screen size (see attached screenshot 04_mockup.png).

In addition it would be helpful to highlight the selected records in a Grid View with a slightly different background color (see attached screenshot 05_highlighting mockup.png). Currently the information which of the rows/records have been selected gets lost when a user has to scroll to right, to display "hidden" columns on a smaller screen.
